Hang on for the Ride!

I love this photo! It makes me smile.

red shirts
red flower
blue jeans
clenched hands
vintage trike
intense expressions

It's magic, right?

It's childhood.
The way it used to feel.
The way I used to feel.

I love this photo. It makes me smile.

Sometimes I remember those days. Thanks for bringing them back today.

Grandparenting makes the magic reappear! When my kiddos were little I feel I missed out because of being their parent, you know, busy, preoccupied with daily life...now I have time to just observe, get involved and laugh!

Can't wait to get Brennan a bike!

Donna said...

Such a sweet pic...those red sweaters light up the whole picture and take you back a few years too! It looks so nostalgic with the determination of trike riding and yet so very current too! What a bunch of darling grandchildren you have!

I love the emotions that this photo stirred in you. Any moment we can grab onto that innocence again is a blessed moment.

Bryce looks like he is in deep concentration. I REALLY love this photo and am trying to figure out how to make my wall grow as I would love to have this one on it. It is getting hard to choose, so many are worthy of being on my wall. I guess I will have to start changing them once in a while so that I can have a change of scenery in my hallway. I can see how just looking at it would make you VERY happy.

And the way they are playing together is so wonderful! What a beautiful picture. Childhood. I want to go back.

Sarah Halstead said...

Aww! So cute! I love this picture.

Grandma Honey said...

Nothing like grandchildren! And ones dressed in red all the better. :)

My favorite pictures of all are the ones caught in just normal fun...like this one.

Stef said...

Some pictures capture images even the best writer would miss. You got them both.

You're so good at both!!
